Hitomezashi stitching - 01.12.2020
Hitomezashi stitching - wow! It's a variant of the Japenese sashiko embroidery technique which produces inticate patterns. According to Wikipedia: "Coming into existence in the Edo period (1615-1868), sashiko embroidery was first applied to clothing out of a practical need, and would have been used to strengthen the homespun clothes of olden times."
Annie Perkin's (@anniek_p) twitter posts explain that the stitches can be decided in many ways: at random, using your favourite numbers in binary, whatever you please. They can be symmetric or not. Whichever you prefer. Colouring in the areas between the stitches makes for interesting patterns. Have a go yourself with my app what I made (not so good for mobile use):

What a shame that this is an advertising jingle and only twenty seconds long! I'm going to ask Birds Eye for a longer remix.
